OCEANUS TESTS WATERS OF PURE MASS MARKET scmp.com
SJM Holdings will open Macau’s 34th casino tomorrow in an attempt to take a larger share of the mass market. Following an investment of HK$1.5 billion, Casino Oceanus is set to open with 260 mass-market gaming tables and 560 slot machines spread over three floors and 32,000 square meters. 2,400 people will work at Casino Oceanus. With no VIP service and no junket operators, and a direct connection to Macau’s main ferry terminal through a covered footbridge, Oceanus is, according to SJM chief executive Ambrose So Shu-fai, targeting “pure mass market”.
